Palestine: Ground Zero of a Liberated World

A Panel on Spectre's Special Issue on Palestine

May 14, 2024

The editorial board here at Spectre invites you to join us on Wednesday May 22nd at 1pm for an exciting panel discussion as we launch our ninth issue, a special issue entirely dedicated to Palestine.

Israel’s genocidal assault on Gaza has provoked an unprecedented outpouring of global solidarity with Palestine. The Palestinian struggle for liberation has become the epicenter of radicalization on college and university campuses and beyond. More and more people are breaking with presumptive Zionism and rising in solidarity with the Palestinian cause by fighting against the genocide. Organizations from across the political left have joined the fight, emphasizing that Palestinian liberation is a feminist, queer, Black, and labor issue.

Join us for this panel to discuss Spectre’s new special issue on Palestine and the politics of solidarity and resistance. Please register here with Ticket Tailor to receive a link to the live-streamed video on the day of the event. The event will also be recorded and captioning will be provided.
